Rob is excited to find out the results of your votes, Cesternation. It’s a big week for Big Brother, as they will announce the cast of Big Brother 14 on Thursday, on the heels of this historic poll.

Kos Kosdrosky is on the line to reveal the votes– Over 2500 votes were cast, and there were 2407 legitimate votes that were tallied. Kos and Rob give big props to Curt Clark for setting up the poll and getting rid of the spoof ballots. Out of the 142 Big Brother players eligible people for this contest, 139 received votes. The exclusive threesome who did not receive votes was Justin (S4), Parker (S9), and Amanda (S9).

Rob asks Kos to start off with some interesting tidbits of players who did not place near the top. Lawon (who Matt Hoffman endorsed) is number 43. Shelly came in 35th, ahead of Lawon, while Jessie came in behind Lawon. Justin, the knife guy from Season 2, came in 48th place. Marcellas placed behind him, which Rob does not agree with- he says Marcellas was a good player who did a dumb thing. Kos also notes that Season 9 players got the fewest votes overall in this poll: the votes for all the season 9 players combined still would not be enough to make the top 14.

THE RESULTS
14. Matt Hoffman (S12). Rob thought at one point the diabolical super-genius Matt was going to win the game his season, but Rob thinks he should have used the Diamond Power of Veto to get out a brigade member, rather than Kathy. Rob thinks he was deserving to make the list, but that his campaigning probably made a difference.

13. Britney Haynes (S12). Rob is not ready to co-sign Brtiney’s placement on this list. He knows she has a big following and is very funny (probably the funniest female ever on Big Brother), but he thought she was more of character and not too strong of a player.

12. Jun Song (S4). Rob thinks she played one of the best under-the-radar games and is very underrated. Kos thinks she fell into a perfect situation so he is more impressed with Allison’s game, but Rob thinks Jun may be the best female winner and would place her higher on this list.

11. Eric Stein (S8). Rob is glad to see Eric on the list but isn’t sure we ever saw him playing Big Brother since America was controlling his moves. Rob thinks if anyone deserves another shot to play the game, it’s Eric Stein.

10. Mike “Boogie” Malin (S2, S7). Rob thought he didn’t do very well in Big Brother 2 and may not have deserved a spot in BB7. Rob thought he was one of the more dominating players and he worked well with Dr. Will in the Chilltown alliance in BB7. Rob thinks they were the first alliance to ever name itself. Rob and Kos would have placed Mike Boogie higher on this list.

9. Daniele Donato (S8, S13). Rob thinks she was overshadowed by her Dad in her first season, but she’s a master in the physical competitions and a dangerous player. In BB13, she was a little too trigger-happy but still managed to last pretty far in the game. Kos also discloses that the sight of Dani in a bikini is the reason he started watching Big Brother, so we have her to thank for his appearance on this very podcast.

8. Rachel Reilly (S12, S13). Rob thinks she grew as a player over the course of the season in BB13. He thinks she did better when Brendon was out of the house. Rob thinks she’s not a very subtle player– you know what she’s going to do, but it’s hard to stop her.

7. Big Jeff Schroeder (S11, S13). Rob thinks there are a lot of players on this list he would put ahead of Big Jeff. He thinks he was really saved in BB11 with the Coup D’Etat twist. Rob thinks he’s very likeable and easy to root for, but he’s not convinced he’s a great game player.

6. Danielle Reyes (S3, S7). She was a big influence on Rob before he played Survivor. Rob thinks she changed the game– there was no jury before her. Rob and Kos think she should be higher on this list. Rob thinks she played a little too hard on All Stars, but that she’s the best player never to win Big Brother.

5. Jordan Lloyd (S11, S13). Rob winces as Kos reveals her name. He thinks she is likeable and “so not a threat” that she sticks around longer. Also she is likely to win whenever she makes it to the end because no one is mad at her. He does think she has some strategy, but is never really pulling the strings.

4. Janelle Pierzina (S6, S7). Rob and Kos thinks she’s a good player but she may be a little high on this list. She is a fierce competitor and can have a good social game at times, and she was well-liked by the audience.

3. Evel Dick Donato (S8, S13). He’s someone who knows the game inside and out and one of the most memorable winners. Kos thinks he was saved by the America’s Player twist and placed a little too high on this list. Rob thinks he deserves a high placement and that he was poised to win BB13 as well had he not had to leave the house– he set Rachel’s win in motion.

2. Dan Gheesling (S10). He got off on the wrong foot in BB10 but was able to turn it around. Rob and Kos think he’s a great player and deserving of this spot in the list. He’s likeable, even-keeled, a student of the game, and a strong competitor.

1. Dr. Will Kirby (S2, S7). Kos notes that Dr. Will almost doubled everyone else’s score, and was 1st or 2nd on 58% of the ballots, and appeared on 68% of the ballots. Rob says America got this right– Will is the best Big Brother player and may even be the best reality show contestant of all time. He was the biggest influence on Rob and was his favorite player to watch. He was always able to turn things around if he was on the block, and was able to go far in All Stars with a huge target on his back.

After going through the top 14, Kos reveals the “close but no cigar” votes: 20. Maggie Ausburn, 19. Kaysar Ridha, 18. Nakomis Dedmon, 17. Brendon Villegas, 16. Hayden Moss, 15. “Veto King” James Rhine.

Some stats on this BB Top 14 list: It includes 7 males and 7 females, 7 winners and 7 non-winners. There are 5 players from seasons 1-7, and 9 from seasons 8-13. Season 7 (All-Stars) and 13 are most represented, with 4 players each on the list.
